The last film that Menahem Golan produced with Chuck Norris. See more »
When Simon takes the Chap Stick and graphite and puts it on the dental floss he supposedly cut through the bars in very little time. Theoretically impossible. See more »
Well, the way I see it, Victor, you have two choices: you can swim for it or you can give it up.
I'm gonna break you like a bad habit numb-nuts.
Well, that is a third choice.

It has been a year, but even after six months of therapy, Det. Danny O'Brien is still having nightmares about that fight. His therapist, Kay, is more than just his therapist. She's pregnant with his baby and O'Brien wants to marry her.
Simon Moon, who killed 22 women, breaks out of Camden State Hospital three years after O'Brien captured him. But the laundry van he stole ran off the road and into the Snake River (wait, if he was in California ... or does California have a Snake River?). His body is never found.
A dilapidated neighborhood in Los Angeles may be on its way back after the city spent $14 million on the renovation of a legendary theater. The completion of the project is being celebrated with a big movie premiere. What the people inside don't know is that before the event started, two women were killed in the building. Everything points to Simon Moon, but he's dead. Isn't he?
The beginning of the movie made me wonder if this was the sort of thing I could enjoy. But seeing the name of Ben Matlock's gorgeous daughter in the opening credits gave me an incentive to watch. Brynn Thayer isn't that great-looking here, but she is attractive and she has her good moments as an actress. Plus her character is easy to like.
Chuck Norris is tough when he has to be, but also quite kind and tender. He did a good job, and I actually liked him. I could see this movie as the pilot for a series (if it had been made recently), but I don't know that I'd watch week after week. Those looking for Norris to display his martial arts skills get one scene where he teaches Victor a lesson.
The investigation is interesting, though not that complicated.
What I wasn't expecting when I saw the opening was so much comedy. Many of O'Brien's scenes with Kay, the scene where the nervous theater manager tells Betsy she has the job, the scene where Robinson said he would help with the investigation, and part of Robinson's one other scene in the theater. Plus a chase by police that involves O'Brien but has nothing to do with the rest of the plot.
The movie is not that violent, except for the nightmare. The killer (whose face we don't see) breaks people's necks, which isn't pleasant to watch, but it's not bloody.
It was good for a TV-movie. Average for a theatrical production.
